Some Republicans are accusing the party's neoconservative hawks of playing dirty pool in an attempt to smear Sen. Rand Paul as a bigot for having an aide who once expressed admiration for Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth.
"There are three ways to take down a political opponent — tie him to a sex scandal, attack his credentials or call him a racist," Dr. Sciolaro said.
"Sen. Paul cannot be successfully challenged on any of the three — and is definitely not a racist," said Dr. Sciolaro, who first met Mr. Paul in January on an eight-day trip to Israel, during which Mr. Paul earned positive reviews from some of the Jewish state's most conservative religious and political leaders.
